Post Raiders game, 3-1?

Nor can Houston hang with KC.  Houston is the same as they always are... they are a paper tiger.  They have about 3 more weeks of looking like a good football team before they start folding.

Watson can be electric. I could see him playing out if his mind and wining a game like that. They have way better of a chance of hanging with KC then the colts I think.

Anyone know much about the raiders dline and oline.

The saints looked really good with bridgewater yesterday.

The Saints didn't look good on offense.  They only gained 250 yds.  They had a punt return TD and fumble return TD that made a pretty pedestrian offensive day look good on the score page.


And I can almost guarantee you a loss if we give up TD on a PR and a fumble.

I don't. The way you play a high powered team like KC is exactly how teams used to play the late 2000's Colt's. Keeping their offense off the field by having 7-9 min drives and being very very physical.

 

Houston's offensive line isn't good enough to sustain long drives like that all game IMO. They very much remind me of the Colt's team from Lucks first couple of years. Dynamic QB, average RBs, porous OL (minus a spot or two) and decent skill players.

I don't mean to be impolite but that is literally laugh out loud funny.

No, they don't. KC is at Detroit before they play us at home the next week. I have Mahomes as my fantasy QB, so I know his schedule. :) 

He meant that the texans play kc before they play us.

Yep.   I don't think the Raiders are as bad as some think they are.  

Carr is completing 74% of his passes so far.  Jacobs is rushing for over 5 yards a carry.  

 

It really hurts with the lid off of our Defense with Hooker out.  He is probably the most important player on the team but is almost without question the most important player on our D.  I think most of the posters here greatly undervalue what he accomplishes out there.

 

The 3rd quarter reveals it quite a bit.

Kc will destroy  the texans. They struggle  versus speedy wrs and all of kc wrs have speed. It's  like a team of Hilton's.

No defense can keep up with KC. My point was I think Watson can have a game that can keep up with them.

Chiefs get ahead and take their foot off the gas allowing games to be closer than they should be. Case in point - both Jaguars and Ravens games where they gave points in prevent mode though with the Ravens, it was a closer one when the points were given. Raiders were more inept on offense than Jaguars and Ravens, that is saying something. :)

I don’t believe in the concept of “trap” games.  I thinks that’s a fan misconception. Pretty sure the pros all understand the thin line between winning and losing and thus the need to take every team seriously. 

I'm not sure about that in general.  There are times IMO when teams are not as prepared mentally as possible.  Even pros.  IT's just human nature.

 

HOWEVER, this Colts team surely isn't overlooking ANYBODY.  Haven't proven anything and have significant injuries.  I can't imagine a Colts trap game this weekend.  That would be disturbing.

you know, you could be correct.  Although if someone is going to use a personal pronouns it is supposed to be used to refer to the last noun defined, that whole antecedents thing and all.

Obviously the Cheifs will lose at some point, probably even multiple games, but I don't see the Texans hanging with them in KC's house.

I think KC potentially loses to the Pats on the road and maybe a game or two in their division. If the Bears weren't struggling so much on offense I'd say that could be an interesting game, but I don't think Trubisky will get it done.

No, none of us are perfect.  It was meant tongue in cheek, I apologize that I did not put some emojis or something else in the post to indicate that.

Maniac should be back against the raiders but I have a feeling TY will be out. 

 

At home, colts win this game.

The Texans still have to play at KC, at Baltimore, and vs the Patriots. I do not see them winning any of those games. At Jags will be tough as well. I think it will come down to our head to head matchups with them regarding who wins the division.

I am expecting a comfortable Colts win.  However, I am also worried due to my lack of concern over this game.

KC @ NE on Dec 08. If not for this game these two teams may have gone 16-0. 

Are you suggesting both will go 15-0-1?

Something to watch Sunday. I have several mentions on twitter that Oakland wants to give Jacobs more carries. I think he had 25 against the Vikings. Colts will need to buckle down on that.

He and Waller are the guys to keep an eye on. He got 20+ carries in week 1, almost 100 yards on just 12 carries in week 2, and dealt with an injury/illness in week 3. He should be back to form against us though and he's talented, over 5 ypc. I think he'll get a heavy workload.

Observations from Raiders/Vikings game:

 

Raiders are incredibly undisciplined in regard to penalties (aren't they always).

 

Raiders defense: we can get big plays with misdirection as they over pursue everything. I expect Parris Campbell to take a reverse to the house this week. The Vikings Oline opened up some huge holes. Colts line should do the same.

 

Raiders offense: they do mostly underneath stuff. Our Dline needs to get their hands up and force Carr to throw short outs.

I'd also like to see our linebackers show blitz a lot, but mostly back off at the snap. Carr will panic. I expect a pick from one of our LB's.

Waller is a baller, so stop him and we're in good shape.

 

On another note, Dalvin Cook looks really, really good, as does the Vikings Oline.

Mack should run for at least 100 yards vs Oakland.

Watching the highlights of the raiders and MN game. Mack might have a big day lol. They were bad at run defense. They only have basically one receiver in Waller.

Not sure why you think that’s so funny.  The Texans have a real shot at this.   Watson can change a game.  

 

while I am loving JB he cannot do that 

 

so shes right you're wrong

I agree with you. That’s why I said Watson has the skills to hang with KC.  I think we could be in the same situation as last year. Both teams will make the playoffs out of the south. The other other team to not win the division and get in might be the bills.

    • Pocket Passing QBs are defined as QBs who sit in the pocket under pressure and make throws from the pocket. Most of the league these days is based upon QBs getting outside of the pocket to make plays, which means they are not primarily pocket passers. I’m not saying Love will be unable to get outside of the pocket, but I don’t see it much on tape as he has great protection and doesn’t need to. Personally, I don’t care for either of them, and would rather wait for the better class in 2021 while building more this year, but of the two, it would at least be more interesting to go for something the Colts haven’t really ever had. Spice it up a bit, ya know
    • ...a big fat check the man is freaking awesome! Give this dude an extension already    come on we need some humor around here not much else to look forward to the rest of the season for the Colts that is.   Time to laugh with me 
    • Huh? The top 15 QB's statistically are all primarily pocket passing QB's. Mahomes, Watson, Wilson, Rodgers, Prescott, Wentz, while being mobile in the pocket, are not running QB's. Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson are really the only 2 QB's used in actual running situations continuously.    Sorry, but there are no Lamar Jackson's in this draft and Hurts isn't the answer either. A) I don't want to see an offense rebuilt into something that isn't sustainable. Eventually LJ will have to sit his * in the pocket. B) Every time I see Hurts' name pop up I wonder if people have actually watched him. There is a reason he couldn't cut it at Bama, and got beat out by an actual passing QB. I don't think there are going to be many teams who are going to rebuild their offense for a guy who can't read a defense, nor progress beyond his first/second read before he's wanting to just take off running. Hurts wouldn't even be on my board just due to him not being a good passing QB.
